I have been in the process of testing an online vocabulary building program and I received a very kind response from a b-Hebrew list member suggesting I switch to Unicode. The suggestion also came with a link to SIL's coversion tool to port standard fonts to Unicode. I have not tried this yet but wanted to let others know about it.

TECkit (http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&cat_id=TECkit)

Obvisouly there are some issues with Unicode (e.g. it wont work on older Windows operating systems) but using Unicode instead of the BW fonts would result in no need to download the font and would therefore work on computers in Libraries and be less of a headache. So if I can get it to work I may eventually switch from the (great!) BW font in my flashcard program to Unicode... although I am looking forward to BW coming out with their own Unicode solution :D
